My first chapel with the Blades was very successful. I had the entire team attend! It was nice to introduce the program with all the guys there as we had some fun with a few games etc. Our theme for the year is "I AM SECOND". This comes from a ministry in the US and is very applicable to the team setting, putting teammates and others ahead of yourself. The I Am Second series has dozens of films of various people sharing their stories. For our first chapel we heard from Mike Fisher who is a NHL player and a follower of Jesus. I know many of the Blades players could relate to Mike's story about leaving home at a young age and the pressure to perform in a business where everything is stats and performance related. I try to share with the guys that God is their biggest fan and has given them the ability to play the game they love.
Please continue to pray for me. I would love to be able to invest in 1-2 players this season. Please pray that God would grant me favour and show me what he wants to do with this chaplaincy.
